Rising NBA star Trae Young has helped wipeout a million dollars in past-due medical debt for needy families.
Young is the point guard for the Atlanta Hawks.
He partner with a nonprofit organization “RIP Medical Debt” for the project.
RIP Medical Debt was started in 2014 by two former debt collection executives.
The nonprofit seeks to buy and forgive medical debt across the country, targeting accounts of individuals that are at least two times below the federal poverty level, are in insolvent or have debts that are 5% or more of gross annual income.
In their latest venture, they paid off the debts belonging to 570 families in the Atlanta area.
Young actually donated $10,000 through his foundation.
That allowed RIP Medical Debt to purchase and abolish more than $1,059,000 in overdue debts.
